Subject: Re: [ubl-ndrsc] Rule: 98 Built In Types

Should we be masking the datatypes to protect against any future changes in 
definitions or other technologies? For instance xsd:boolean allows 0/1 and 
true/false - do all languages implement boolean this way? Will another XML 
schema language define boolean this way, or will it add yes/no?

I would suggest adopting and specifying the UBL definition of the datatypes 
(for now they might be exactly what is in schema), but we don't use the 
schema types directly. So I would defined a ubl:Boolean that restricts 
xsd:boolean and then use ubl:Boolean everywhere instead of xsd:boolean.

I belive in the long run this will be a useful "protection" from technology
